* ''General Jumbo'': Jumbo was the eponymous hero of a long-running story appearing intermittently in ''ComicBook/TheBeano'', in command of a sizeable army (and occasionally navy and air force) built by his friend Professor Carter. A low-achieving hero by modern standards, he mainly foiled minor nuisances and petty criminals, but since even this entailed independently controlling dozens of models using a wrist controller with only a few buttons, it would be churlish to deride his efforts.

** Jumbo still frequently shows up in the annuals. In one story, one of his toy soldiers becomes both self-aware and [[AIIsACrapshoot malevolent]], and tries to take control of ''him.''
